Quality of life assessments
If your pet got diagnosed with a terminal illness or their age is giving them trouble, we could offer a quality of life assessment in your home.
We can prescribe palliative medication (if necessary), explain what to expect on "bad days" and how to make the most of what is left for as long possible (but not too late) with less worry and our full support. We will need to get the full medical history of your pet before a visit.
We are unlikely to be able to offer you a visit if your pet hasn't been seen recently by your own vets. Please feel free to complete our free Quality of Life Assessment questionnaire by clicking on the link below.
Peaceful home euthanasia
We offer gentle, under deep sleep euthanasia only to make sure your pet is relaxed, content and completely pain free before passing.
We don't rush, use any restraints or shave your pet's paws. If you wish, you can hold them in your arms , on your lap or just sit with them whilst they are falling asleep.
We use a three step euthanasia technique to ensure that your pet does not experience any discomfort and the process takes 45 minutes to an hour depending on your pet's age and health conditions.
After your pet has passed, we can create a number of mementos to help ease your grieving, most of which are offered free of charge.
A small hair clipping is taken and placed in a white organza drawstring bag.
Ink paw prints and nose prints
A permanent reminder of the unique features of your pet, paw and nose prints are made inside a tasteful sympathy card.
Non clay paw 3D print
This delicate keepsake is a truly tactile memorial and offered as part of our service to you. There is no charge to you for a single print, and if you want additional copies, they are available for purchase at a small cost of £10 each*.
*Please request additional imprints at the time of your booking.
Support for young children
The loss of a family a pet is terribly difficult for all concerned, but with young children there is a delicate balance that must be struck. To help ensure each young person is able to understand what has happened and then to develop ways to cope, we offer two very helpful books that can assist with this challenge free of charge, just ask for them.
My Pet Memory Book is a kind of scrap book that encourages children to remember your pet by creating a lasting memorial
The Invisible Leash is a children's story book that tackles this complicated issue. As the books says, "An invisible leash around our hearts connects everyone to their pets no matter where they are, on this Earth or somewhere beyond"
We are working with a couple of different crematoriums so we can cater for every budget and wish. Let me tell you a little more on what each option means.
Communal cremation means your pet is cremated with other pets and their ashes scattered together. This is the most affordable option but you won't have a choice where the pet is cremated.
Individual cremation means your pet is cremated on their own and after cremations all their ashes are collected and as a standard, returned back to you in a scatter tube. We work with Wild Wood Pet Crematorium for all our individual cremations.
But what if you don't want your pet's ashes back but still want them individually cremated? Or you want them returned in something personalised like a casket or urn? Or you would like to bury them once they are cremated? Rest assured, we are able to help in either way - just click on the link below to find out more.
